Join us on Thursday 22 April for the film premiere of 'Collection' from our award-winning project Hear and Now, co-produced with the Philharmonia.
Hear and Now is an intergenerational community creative project which unites older people living with dementia and young people through shared music making activities, and is produced by Orchestras Live and the Philharmonia.
Like many of our projects Hear and Now moved online in 2020, and following a period of research and development, participants and professional musicians were able to once again join together for virtual workshops to create music, spoken word and film. We are delighted to be able to share the culmination of their creative efforts in this new film, Collection.
Hear and Now: Welcome and panel Q&A | Zoom, 6.00pm - 6.55pm
Hear and Now: Collection | world premiere of artistic film | YouTube, 7.00pm - 7.20pm
Hosted by Johanne Hudson-Lett, leader of Hear and Now partner group Fusion Youth Singing, the pre-show panel event will feature the project’s Artistic Director Tim Steiner and filmmaker Jessie Rodger.
The session will share with audiences how Hear and Now came into being as one of the UK’s first intergenerational orchestral initiatives and how the project has developed over the last 12 years to involve over 600 people. The panel will also discuss the artistic vision behind the film, which was inspired by and created during the coronavirus pandemic.
They will also be joined by producers from the Philharmonia and Orchestras Live, Philharmonia musicians and key figures from partner groups Tibbs Dementia Foundation and Leicester Musical Memory Box, as well as participants from the project itself.
Reserve your free tickets through the Philharmonia website – you will receive the Zoom details and YouTube premiere link the day before the event.
